dc.description.abstract A transcript of an interview with Patricia Viseur Sellers by Susana SáCouto. The interview took place on June 1, 2016 at The Hague, Netherlands, and the transcript, which is represented here, has been reviewed and edited from the original audio version. During the interview, Sellers reminisces on contacting Gabrielle Kirk McDonald to explore employment at the ICTY; the moment Prijedor was announced to be a central location for the work of the Office of the Prosecutor; being approached by Prosecutor Goldstone and Deputy Prosecutor Blewitt to determine the feasibility of investigating sexual violence under the ICTY Statute, and the differences between being a public defender in Philadelphia; a human rights advocate in Brazil, and working at the ICTY. Sellers also discusses dealing with bureaucracy at the international level; adjusting to a hybrid common law/civil law system; linguistic challenges between Anglophone and Francophone judges and staff at the ICTY/ICTR; the nature of prosecuting sexual crimes in a mostly male setting; examining gender relationships in the Office of the Prosecutor, and the importance of the landmark sexual violence cases she worked on.
